comment BASH: Command not running, special character '�' suddenly appeared (Ubuntu)
Bash, yes; but which terminal (xterm, gnome-terminal, whatever, there are a lot of them). To see LANG, type locale -v in your shell. Moreover, knowing the exact version of your OS would help.

comment BASH: Command not running, special character '�' suddenly appeared (Ubuntu)
Does not happen here... probably depend some strange LANG settings. In UTF-8 ñ is a two-bytes char, so you must have the terminal ignoring it. Which terminal are you using? How is LANG set?

You can add the excerpt of the log where it is failing to the question --- or a link to paste.bin. Add also which Unix flavor you have and which version of the LaTeX suite.

...what a bad idea ;-). So, a a glance, 2015112 is November, 2nd or January, 12th?

comment access of linux and windows to same share location
My personal experience (heavy Linux user, sometime Windows mainly for MSoffice) with the second option: you need 8G RAM to have it smoothly. But if you have, it's very powerful. On my home machine with 16G ram and 4G given to the Virtualbox Windows 7 VM, the latter runs almost as if it were native.

comment How can I shutdown a RHEL server at 06:45 tomorrow morning?
About closing the ssh session --- you can check (close and enter again, check if the shutdown is still running). Otherwise you'll need sudo nohup shutdown... ---although it shouldn't be needed (the HUP signal will be sent as a normal user, so...)

comment dhcpd does not allow filename option with a colon in it
Is there any NTFS, (v)FAT or similar filesystem somewhere? The colon ":" is a forbidden char for them...
